    The y8 has less power and torque, but the civic is lighter.. Should work just as well.

    Is this a four door? Coupe? Hatch?

    You'll miss the torque, but I would be more concerned about the gearing. The y8 is going to have shorter gears compared to the LS, which could be good or bad, depending on what type of dirt track you race on.. You could be between gears all the time.


    Info quoted from Honda D engine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    And just as a reference point:
